Social media policy

Wheaton College welcomes participation in social media, such as Facebook pages and groups, and we encourage you to be an active member of the community by sharing information, asking questions of the college and of each other, and offering advice and criticism to improve Wheaton.

Social media forums managed by Wheaton staff and faculty members require that participants abide by our community's Honor Code and the Acceptable Use Policy.

Actions that are unacceptable in other settings are also unacceptable on our social media channels. These include:

  • Harassment in any form.
  • Failure to respect the rights of others, such as the right to privacy.
  • Forgery or other misrepresentation of one's identity.
  • Distribution of copyrighted materials without the permission of the copyright owner.

Posts containing personal attacks, profanity, nudity, hate speech or illegal material are prohibited. Online forums should be used for discussion of general interests and issues relating to the college, not specific individuals and situations. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to remove any post or to revoke a user's privilege to post to our page.

Please be aware that we cannot immediately review every comment posted on the page. Opinions expressed in non-Wheaton posts are not necessarily those of Wheaton and its employees, and we cannot guarantee the accuracy of these posts.

Comments and complaints should be addressed to the college at info@wheatoncollege.edu.
